Seeking co-panelists for Urban History Association Conference - October 20-22, 2006 in Tempe, AZ
I am looking for two co-presenters and a commentator to join a session proposal for the Urban History Association Conference in Tempe, AZ. The conference deals with all urban topics, but has expressed special interest in papers and panels that have a comparative international framework or that place the study of urbanization in one country or a specific period within an international context or that have transnational implications.
My paper will explore what factors make certain individuals ‘ideal owners’ of historic homes. The paper will draw upon my 2003 Ph.D. dissertation and will include both American and Scottish case studies. I seek co-panelists interested in discussing topics related to homeownership, home restoration and related themes. Other papers could highlight differences between owners and renters, the challenges associated with home restoration projects or the role homeowners play within urban life. I would welcome participation from researchers who have explored these topics within not only a Scottish and/ or American context but also other cultures.
I envision a session where we can both comment on our respective research and invite audience discussion. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have an interest in participating in this panel. The deadline for submitting proposals is March 1, 2006.
